Littlest Policeman's Last Call
William Bunn was a giant, at eight years old,
An honorary Raleigh police officer since June 11th.
On July 1st he departed with a police badge of courage,
William fought the battle against the crime of cancer.
His casket wears the Stars and Stripes of a young hero,
Who never complained but fought to leave a lasting legacy.
That since five years old, he dreamed of being an officer
That now a police honor guard pays their last respects.
The bagpipes have escorted him to his final resting place.
And now Gabriel’s Horn will call the littlest Policeman’s last call.
Where God has a new Guardian Angel with a badge to monitor heaven,
And his uniform is already packed for the voyage to the Pearly Gates.
Dedicated to William Bunn who passed away this July.
